The first UFC event in Croatia will feature a heavyweight contender main event.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
It wasn’t that long ago that dos Santos and Cain Velasquez ruled the division with an iron fist. But times change. Velasquez is currently hampered with a back injury after losing the belt to Fabricio Werdum and pulling out of the rematch.
Dos Santos will be looking to rebound from his TKO loss to Alistair Overeem in December.
Rothwell recently tapped Josh Barnett at UFC on FOX 18. He has a four-fight win streak, but will likely want to avoid the slow starts he is known for with dos Santos.
UFC Fight Night 86 takes place April 10th and can be seen on FOX Sports One. Tickets go on sale to the general public February 12th at 10AM CET.
